I am considering adding two 10" passive subs to my setup. I am wondering how to best achieve optimal results.
I am using all MonoPrice in-wall speakers, and powered sub that I custom built. The AVR I am using is a Denon 2311CI.
I do not want to add another powered sub, rather - just the two passives to help give my l/r mains a little more low end (primarily for music listening). I will continue to use my powered sub for LFE.
I am using the 8" 3-way speakers for my l/r mains.
What if I pick up two of these:
And one of these:
Then...just connect the output terminals properly (l main to left sub, r main to r sub) and send the "input" of the speaker selector to the l/r main terminals on the 2311CI?
Will that in essence, give me the lower end I want from the front mains, while still sending only the LFE to the sub I custom built? I think so. I will basically make my l/r mains "bigger" in the eyes of the Audyssey, without technically adding another sub.
The selector is supposed to send the proper impedence to the amp. I just wonder, if I connect an 8 ohm 3-way speaker to a passive sub, what that may do the the overall impedence. Both the 3-way and the passive sub are rated at 100 watts nominal, 200 watts peak.
Is there anyone on this thread - or from MonoPrice (if they're reading this) that can help me?
Thanks in advance.
